I bought a Samsung 470 SSD 128GB. Just to get a new option in your list
It has samsungs own controller, wich is 100% reliable, no firmware, or driver issues at all.
Altough its only SATA3, and not 6, it beats both Intel510 and M4/C300 in a lot of tests.
And is only ~220$.

In 200-plus pages in this thread, yours might be the first comment concerning use of the ROG Connect Cable - Congratulations! I don't think many here will be able to help you, but did you consult the manual?

From page 3-29, Section 3.5.9, you need to enable the ROG Connect function in the Bios. Next, there seem to be some configuration options you can select in RC Post Mode. This section doesn't have more detail, but I suspect that this might be where you can decide what shows up for your laptop, so your answer might be found here.

Be sure to tell us what you find and its usefulness, we will all be curious!

well, all the compenents arrived on friday, and as I couldn't sleep anyway (due to illness, all better now) I decided to build the computer overnight. It took me from 4am until about 4pm the following day due to component issues and stupidity. In fact I only got it working by calling in outside help (my sister-in-law's boyfriend). I was going to do some sort of build log but by the time I'd got stuck in and started having problems the idea had lost its appeal...

Here's a quick run-down of the issues I had:

1. Cooler (antec 620). As I'm not the brightest it took me a while to figure out that I would have to put the fan on the outside of the case to fit the 620. After figuring this out I realised that if I wanted to put the radiator on the side of the case (Grandia GD05) with 2x 180mm fans on I would also need to put the other fan outside the case otherwise it would block the positioning of the radiator meaning the screw holes would not line up. So instead I forced (and I do mean forced) the radiator in the gap between the back of the PSU (AX850) and the front of the case, only to discover that the screw holes would not line up on that side at all. After having moved every single fan in and out of the case approx 3 times I settled on having the antec fan and the case fan from the right hand side of the case. Then I found that the radiator was blocking the insertion of the mobo. After taking the radiator back out and installing the mobo I discovered that the radiator was being blocked by a heatsing on the mobo and would not fit... After much 'persuasion' I was finally beaten by the fact that one of the tubes going from the radiator to the mobo started to leak slightly....

At this point I checked I had not leaked on anything, cleaned the thermal paste off and fitted the stock cooler, thank god I had that as a back-up.

2. No picture. When I booted nothing came on the monitor. At all. After trying numerous times to succesfully boot I unplugged/re-plugged in everything to no avail. That's when I called in my sister-in-law's b/f who is about to start a computer science course at university. After trying various things he decided on a whim to try the hdmi output on the mobo instead of the dvi output on the graphics card (asus gtx 560ti directII TOP) and lo and behold it started to work. Everything is now up and running, and I have to say I love my new PC, and much as it was frustating at times I enjoyed the build experience and am happy that, albeit with a little help, I built my own PC.

On a side note, I just moved my old PC upstairs and the monitor was not displaying any picture when booting. I then did something that I foolishly had not tried with my new build (also something which the guy about to start doing the computer science course didn't think of) that made it work....

I turned the monitor off and on...

So, apologies for not writing a build log like I promised, I'm sure you can understand why I did not have the energy, but I hope this little build story has been of some amusement to you all!

Also, a quick question, am I better using the driver for the GPU to take care of the sound or the sondblaster driver for the onboard sound chip? I am outputing everything via HDMI cable to my amp using the mini hdmi output on the GPU.

---------------

Im feeling like we are in SSD thread so I will ask something that's actually about the Mobo ....

is it normal when I connect my laptop with the ROG cable it only shows CPU temperature
not core nor mobo or gpu .......
only cpu
IIRC the ROG software on the laptop will only show the CPU temp. I have only used it on the Rampage Formula and IIRC it only gave me the options for voltages, multi and the CPU temp. I always had a program up and running on the Formula to keep on eye n the temps. Quite honestly, while it is a cool feature I ended up just using the ROG software on the Formula itself.

Hmmm doing it this way do you even have the option to choose ? wouldn't it force the GPU driver ? I'm NEW enough not to know the answer and I'm seriously asking btw !

IF you can choose between them, I would THINK the MoBo driver w/ XFi would give you the better quality sound over a stockish GPU sound driver ? at least I'd assume there's no special SOUND Chip/driver/software using the GPU option ?

I hope I didn't confuse the issue more

Hi guys, just ordered the parts for my new build and have a bit of a noob question regarding installing motherboard drivers. I'm told I should go to the Asus website and download the latest drivers from there instead of using the disk that comes with the board.

I have started doing this but when I open the main folder there are several folders with apps in them and an app by its self in the main folder see pic for better explanation. Do I need to go into every folder and install stuff or does the app in the main folder install everything?

The USB driver folder has two set up apps? See second pic.

Should I also download the utilities from the Asus site as well instead of the disk?

Best I can offer is for you to read through page 201 post #2006 and a bit after that, we discuss set-up/driver installation procedure.
